Inside Texas Tech: New Sports Performance Center

Aug 3, 2017

There’s a constant hum and whir as I approach the construction site of the new Sports Performance Center near Jones AT&T Stadium. Machines are buzzing and workers in hardhats are moving around like ants circling their mound. They’re working 24-7 these days so the indoor football space is useable in time for fall practices.

The structure looks big from the outside, but stepping inside, hardhat in place, I am wowed by enormity of the space. I’ve never been inside a 747 hangar, but it sure looks like one of those jumbo jets could fit inside.

Our guest is Dr. Philip Gorski, Professor at Yale University discussing his new book American Covenant:  A History of Civil Religion from the Puritans to the Present.  An authoritative account of the long battle between exclusionary and inclusive versions of the American story.

Clarke E. Cochran has now retired from two careers: Vice President, Mission Integration, with Covenant Health System and Professor of Political Science and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Health Organization Management at Texas Tech University, where he specialized in religion and politics, political philosophy and health care policy.
